Whisky Reviews for MOS 18 MoS

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.91 points

  1. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Color gold
    Nose: combination of predominantly yellow fruit and oak, with some honey and spices. Pear is there. Blind I would have typed on a Glenfiddich (in a positive sense). Can do something, but does not completely kill one.
    Taste: velvety-soft, honey-sweet, apple-fruited, slightly oaky beginning with short drift in the pepper. Maybe a hint of peat smoke.
    Finish: long, spicy, sweet, yummy.
    Comment: a very good blend. Even if he does not really know where he wants to go, which is obviously intended. For my taste too little island character. Rather Speyside and Highlandlastig.

    Well balanced blended whisky.

    A nice concoction,
    actually. But too smoky to serve as an aperitif and too light to be an
    after-dinner dram. Well, maybe not. You know what: let us have it during the meal.
    It is quite worthy.
    • Nose
      Sweet nose on toffee,
      gooseberries, a truckload of honey, hints of marzipan, nougat, hazelnuts and
      apple skins. Almond shavings as well. Hints of grapefruit. Quite an expansive
      range of scents, if you ask me. Semoule! I love it.
    • Taste
      Soft arrival with
      nice spices, giving it a bit of a prickle. Very sweet on honey, but now I also
      detect a nice hint of peat. Hardly any wood. The fruit is mostly apples. And
      citrus.
    • Finish
      The finish is
      surprisingly long, quite peppery and sweet.
